However, they remain poorly understood and conceptualized in scientific terms. Here, we provide first steps towards a theory of collective emotions. We first review accounts of the social and cultural embeddedness of...
Conference Paper

Sociological theory assumes that collective emotions experienced during rituals increase group-identification and enhance solidarity. This effect is mediated by the affective charging of group symbols, which subsequently influence group-related attitudes and feelings of belonging outside the ritual context. We test these assumptions in the case of...
